https://www.makegameswith.us/build-an-ios-game-in-your-browser/
Online Self-Paced Tutorial : Build an App - Game
This tutorial is going to teach you how to make your first iPhone game! Your game will be written in Objective-C, the language that is used to write all native iPhone apps. We will be using a game engine called Cocos2D that is very popular in the game industry.
We've set the basic game structure up for you - a background and a top bar to keep score. Your job will be to add ships and a hero character. You'll then learn how to check if the player is touching the screen to make your hero shoot the ships! Once the player has destroyed three ships they will have won the game! Now go to the next step to start coding!

Persuasive Games

Persuasive Games
We design, build, and distribute electronic games for persuasion, instruction, and activism.
Our games influence players to take action through gameplay. Games communicate differently than other media; they not only deliver messages, but also simulate experiences. While often thought to be just a leisure activity, games can also become rhetorical tools.
Our games are highly focused experiences that take advantage of gameplay to incite specific, real world action, like requesting a catalog, submitting information, making a contribution, or casting a vote.

PopCap Developer Program
http://www.popcap.com/
The purpose of the PopCap Developer Program is to contribute to the indie game community by allowing free access to the programming Framework we've successfully based our own games on. There are a few reasons we want to do this.
First, we hope that by reducing technical barriers we help developers to focus more on actual game design instead of compatibility bugs and multimedia programming issues. This will hopefully allow people to make better games, which helps the entire indie/casual game market (including PopCap).
